Transposition

Your digital piano's Transpose function makes it possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone
intervals up to a maximum of six semitones, and lets you easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a singer or
other instruments.
For example, if you set the transposition amount to "5," playing key C produces pitch F. In this way, you can play a song as
though it were in C major, and this instrument will transpose it to F major.
Setting the amount of transposition
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press one of the F 2–
F 3 keys to set the desired amount of transposition.
The lowest key
To transpose the pitch down (in semitone steps)
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press any key
between F 2 and B2.
To transpose the pitch up (in semitone steps)
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press any key
between C 3 and F 3.
To restore the normal pitch
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] and [PIANO/VOICE] buttons, press the C3 key.
